    AMD's Bulldozer Tribute PC - FINISHED!

    I run all the cable through the backplate and connect them to the green extensions



    Corsair wanted me to have their new Vengeance Keyboard and mouse. They won't be available in the states till December







    I was even able to get the hard drive cage back in place. Funny thing is, I won't be using any standard hard drives



    The main power, CPU 12V and the PCIe lines are already attached, so I only have to add one SATA and one Molex line



    The lone molex line is only for the fanbus, which is where my lights and a single intake fan will be controlled



    I'll be using this low tac film to protect the backs of the video card and PCIe solid state drive. They'll act as a substrate.





    Then I glue construction paper to the film

    I am so jealous, I am trying to get that Keyboard too, matches my mod perfectly.
    How is that film going to hold up against the heat?

    Oh boy, Ive stumbled across so much AMD Bulldozer hate/criticism lately.


    By the way, I'm really glad to see another use for Frisket films.

    I've used it on a Geforce 560 Ti with no problems

    I cut and glued down the Steel Diamond plate to the cards



    And added cold cathodes. More of them coming too



    Once again, I always sign my work



    I'm hoping that once I get the OCZ software downloaded and installed the drive will perform better. Right now it just blows and so does the AMD chip

    Well you haven't had a chance to tweak it much yet but regardless it looks majorly WICKED!!!

    I'd be interested with your OCing numbers and such if you decide to go that route please to get a better idea of performane or lack of for the 8150FX.

    Not sure what's doing with your Revo Hybrid but my SSD (OCZ Agility3 120Gb) is getting a 6.9 in the windows performance index using the Crosshair IV mobo and the 890 chipset with a 1055t processor.

    The other system is using the OCZ Vertex3 120Gb SSD and getting a 7.9 rating with the 1090t processor and same motherboard series and chipset.

    Your Revo Hybrid should be getting close to double the performance of either of my SSDs, actually almost triple or more than the Agility3?

    When it comes down to it, the Revo hybrid is really just a 1TB laptop spindle drive not capable of a better score.
